Subject: USS PENNSYLVANIA (BB-38) USS CHANDLER (DD-206) USS SOUTHARD (DD-207) USS HOVEY (DD-208) USS SARGO (SS-188)
If the battleship from 00:30-01:12 is the same BB from 20:03-20:11, it's USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) and if not, it's USS Arizona (BB-39); the three ships from 11:33-11:35 are Clemson-class destroyers USS Hovey (DD-208), USS Chandler (DD-206), and USS Southard (DD-207); the sub from 11:45-11:49 is Sargo-class submarine USS Sargo (SS-188). Also, the carrier from 00:30-00:32,00:48-00:49,00:56-00:58 and 01:08-01:12 is Lexington-class carrier USS Lexington (CV-2) or USS Saratoga (CV-3).
